The MT055CXPRO3 is the Manfrotto standard professional tripod, with 3-section 100% carbon fibre tubes and magnesium castings to save weight without compromising rigidity. The centre column can be set horizontally, utilising a new compact. Depressing the button at the base of the column allows it to be swung 90° without the need to manually reposition the column. Quick Power Lock levers enable the legs to be operated with one hand: all the levers can be grasped at the same time, which makes opening and closing the legs one easy movement. Legs can be set individually at any one of of four angles. EasyLink ¼” sockets in the top casting enable a variety of Manfrotto or other compatible components to be attached to the tripod. The top platform includes a bubble level, which can be rotated so that it is not obscured by a mounted head.
